Breakfast at Tiffany's

Next up on my reading list is a book I picked up today while out running errands.  It is called Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and the Dawn of the Modern Woman by Sam Wasson.  I'm a fan of the movie, but I have to admit, I have never read Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's.  And once again I picked up a book based primarily on its cover, but can you blame me?!  Another reason I think I was drawn to this book is because around this time of year, as I'm deciding what I am going to dress up as for Halloween, I always consider going as Holly Golightly.  I love the costuming in this movie, and I've always thought it would be so much fun to get dressed up in her most iconic look, with the black elbow length gloves, the up-do with a mini tiara, the fabulous necklace, and of course, that perfect little LBD with a gorgeously detailed back.

Simple but gorgeous

I love this coat!

Classic trench- timeless!



  1. My favorite Audrey Hepburn movie is "One for the Road" with Albert Finney. But all her movies are wonderful, she had a style that people will be emulating for years to come.

    Lori, I think you would make a fabulous Holly!! Miss you both; have a great Halloween!!
